Telemedicine and “Incident to”

Telemedicine and “Incident to”

May 14, 2020

Question:
Can a nurse bill a 99211 as “incident to” for a telemedicine visit?

Answer:
If all the “incident to” rules are met and the physician and nurse are in the same suite, yes. Or if all “incident to” rules are met and the nurse and patient are in the same location (office or patient home) and the physician is on a real-time audio with video call then this would also be a billable visit.

*This response is based on the best information available as of 5/14/20.
